EXPORT TRADE BY COMMODITY 



The Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce, released 
today a report showing leading commodities making up the 
$2,264.0 million February 1966 total for U.S. exports of domes- 
tic merchandise, unadjusted for seasonal change. 1 2 The total 
reported for January 1966 was $2,105.3 million. 3 

Of the overall February 1966 total, Schedule B Section 
Machinery and Transport Equipment amounted to $875.9 million. 
Leading commodity groups or individual commodities within this 
Section were: Power generating machinery (including engines), 
$82.7 million; agricultural machinery and parts and tractors 
(excluding tractor parts), $49.5 million; office machinery and 
computers, $40.4 million; construction, excavating, mining 
machines and related machinery and parts (excluding con- 
tractors' wheel type tractors but including industrial type), 
$70.8 million; ; automobile and other road motor vehicles and 
parts (parts exclude tires, engines, and electrical parts) 
$189.4 million; and aircraft and parts (parts excluding tires, 
engines, and electrical parts), $121.5 million. Exports of 
Schedule B section Food and Live Animals totaled $360.5 million. 
Within this category, leading items were wheat (unmilled) at 
$110.1 million and corn (unmilled) at $73.2 million. Among the 
principal components of Schedule B Section Manufactured Goods 
Classified Chiefly by Material were textiles (excluding fibers 
and clothing) at $44.2 million and iron and steel (including 



1 See the February 1966 issue of Report FT <)00-E for season- 
ally adjusted figures on total exports, excluding Department of 
Defense Military Assistance Program — Grant-Aid shipments. 
Seasonally adjusted figures are not available on exports of 
domestic merchandise or on a commodity basis. 

The data on Department of Denfense Mil itary Assistance 
Program — Grant-Aid shipments reported for December 1965 would 
ordinarily have been included in the January t$66 statistics. 
Because of timing difficulties, the December 1 965 Grant-Aid 
data were included in the February 1966 statistics, and from 
now on such shipments will be included in the export stat istics 
on a 2-months' delayed basis. 

3 Month-to-month changes in exports and similar series often 
reflect primarily irregular movements. Cumulations of data 
over J or 4 month periods are desirable to identify underlying 
trends.

The Schedule B 
except Fuels , of 



$234.5 million reflected among among other commodities exports of 
$48.9 million of soybeans, except canned or prepared. The re- 
mainder of the February overall export total was accounted for by 
the other six Schedule B Sections. 

For the 2-month period January-February 1966, exports of 
domestic merchandise totaled $4,369.3 million. Exports of Ma- 
chinery and Transport Equipment accounted for $1,673.9 million 
of this total. Items accounting for the bulk of the 2-month 
total for this Schedule B section were electric machinery appa- 
ratus and appliances, $271.8 million; automobile and other road 
motor vehicles and parts (parts exclude tires, engines and elec- 
trical parts) $355.0 million; aircraft and parts (parts exclude 
tires, engines and electrical), $192.9 million; power generating 
machinery (including engines), $142.4 million; construction, 
excavating, mining machines and related machinery and parts, 
$140.8 million; agricultural machinery and parts and tractors 
(excluding tractor parts), $98.1 million; and office machinery 
and computers, $85.7 million. 

The January-February total for Schedule B section Food and 
Live Animals was $698.0 million of which wheat (unmilled repre- 
sented $201.4 million; corn, $140.2 million; fruits, nuts, and 
vegetables, except oil nuts, $75.1 million; rice, $40.1 million; 
and animal feeds, $56.8 million. Schedule B section Manufac- 
tured goods classified chiefly b y ma terial amounted to $516.4 in- 
cluding iron and steel mill products $86.2 million; nonferrous 
base metals (excluding ore, scrap, uranium and silver, $83.9 mil- 
lion; textiles, (excluding fibers and clothing) $84.4 million; 
and paper and manufactures including newsprint, $64.2 million. 
Inedible crude materials, except fuels totaled $466.1 million in- 
cluding soybeans, except canned, $103.5 million; logs and lumber 
$42.2 million; raw cotton excluding linters and waste, $66.4 mil- 
lion, metal ores concentrates and scrap, $53.5 million and wood 
pulp, $34.3 million.

eous manufactured articles , $263.5; mineral fuels, lubricants , 
and related materials , $132.7 million; Beverages and tobacco , 
$72.3 million; animal and vegetable oils and fats , $58.1 mil- 
lion; and commodities and transactions not classified according

EXPLANATION OF STATISTICS 



COVKRAGE: Export statistics include government as well as nongovernment shipments 
to foreign countries. The export statistics, therefore, include Department of Defense 
Military Assistance Program— Grant-Aid shipments (for which separate figures are 
shown in the footnotes of this report). Mutual Security Program economic assistance 
shipments, and shipments of agricultural commodities under P.L. 480 (The Trade 
Development and Assistance Act of 1954, as amended) and related laws. (The sepa- 
rate information which is available on exports under P.L. 480 and related laws may be 
obtained from the Economic Research Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service of 
the Department of Agriculture.) Shipments to U.S. armed forces and diplomatic missions 
abroad for their own use are excluded from the export statistics. U.S. trade with Puerto 
Rico and U.S. possessions is not included in this report, but the export trade of Puerto 
Rico with foreign countries is included as a part of the U.S. export trade. Merchandise 
shipped in transit Ihrough the United States between foreign countries, not entered as 
imports, is not included in the export statistics. 

VALUATION: The valuation definition used in the export statistics is the value at 
the seaport, border point, or airport of exportation. It is based on the selling price (or 
cost if not sold) and includes inland freight, insurance, and other charges to the port 
of exportation. Transportation and other costs beyond the United States port of expor- 
tation are excluded. None of the values have been adjusted for changes in price level. 



RELIABILITY: The statistics presented in this report are based partly on sample 
data and therefore are subject to sampling variation that may cause them to differ 
somewhat from Ihe results which would have been obtained from processing all export 
documents. For the figures shown in this report the sampling variability can be ignored 
since the probable variability due to sampling is either less than $50,000 (the largest 
variation from rounding of figures) or less than a trivial percentage of the individual 
totals shown. In addition to the effects of sampling variation, the data in this report 
ore subject to errors from such sources as the carry-over of data from month to month, 
errors in reporting or processing, the estimation of shipments valued under $100 (esti- 
mated data for such shipments are included in the over-all export total and in the totals 
for "Commodities and transactions not classified according to kind" and "Low-value" 
shipments, but excluded from other totals), and the omission of low-value parcel post 
shipments. Although the effect of such errors on the rounded totals in this report is 
probably small, the possibility of inaccuracy should be taken into account, particularly 
in using figures of relatively small magnitude. 

Further information regarding coverage, valuation, compilation procedures and preci- 
sion of export data is contained in the foreword of Reports FT 410 and FT 420. For 
complete statement, see foreword in Foreign Commerce and Navigation of the United 
States. K
